Had a question or two about vintage racing in the midwest. Does anyone on the board live and race in the midwest/midsouth region? I live in southern Missouri and the closest track to me is Hallett outside of Tulsa, OK. Great facility but zero vintage motorcycle racing. They have a monthly Motorcycle Lapping Day during the summer and it's great but that's about it.

I'm really chomping at the bit to get into vintage racing. I'm 31 and have raced at the club level before as well as attending the Star racing school but I am far from a seasoned pro. I realize that the majority of the racers on this board are from the Northeast but any information would be great.

Thanks in advance

I've been thinking along those same lines. Haven't found any vintage specific series in the midwest.

CCS runs Heartland Park, Blackhawk Farms, Gateway, Mid-America Motorplex, etc. They don't have a vintage class per se, but you could run lightweight supersport with something like the FZ Ken Essex is building. http://trackaddix.com/

CRA has raced at Mid-America before, most of their races are at Brainerd. They have a vintage class, but it's not something I'd wannna run. http://www.cra-mn.com/

Mid-America(near Omaha) has bike track days at least once a week all summer. http://www.midamericamotorplex.com/2006/default.asp

Iowa Speedway and the Autobahn Country Cub http://www.autobahncountryclub.net/ have had track days in the past.

There's a bunch of mini organizations running on kart tracks. Most have a class for like supermoto and 125GP bikes. I've thought about building something small enough that I could run it at the kart track and yet be fun on a big track. http://www.oklahomasuperbikers.com/

Oklahoma Superbikers looks like a blast! I may have to try that. I've raced MX since I was 8 and would love to try supermoto.

I guess we could try to get enough like minded people together in the midwest and start vintage racing. I'm sure that would be dirt simple...right? Just snag a bunch of dudes with the skill and cash and throw em on the track! But it's a nice thought.
